Survivor: South Pacific Debuts Tonight on CBS

Stacey Powell
A mortician from Grand Prairie is among the latest group of castaways to hit the beach on the CBS reality television show “Survivor: South Pacific” debuting TONIGHT at 8 PM.

Stacey Powell will represent North Texas during the show’s latest season. The mortician from Grand Prairie said that she has no tolerance for pessimism. “I don’t like negativity. I do not like any negative vibes coming in my area,” the 44-year-old said. “If you do, gotta shut you down. Gotta go. Get out of here. Can’t be here with me.”

The 23rd season of “Survivor” takes the hit show back to the South Pacific, where 16 new players will be joined by two returning players: Benjamin "Coach" Wade and Ozzy Lusth, who was previously seen on Survivor: Cook Islands and Survivor: Micronesia.  The group will be split into two tribes – Savaii and Upolu – named for two islands in Samoa, where the series was filmed earlier this summer.
